…Laments Harassment Of Family Members
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organization
(PPCO) decries the stoppage of transactions on all accounts belonging to
PDP Vice presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, wife, his family members
and their businesses by agencies of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Since his nomination, Peter Obi, apart from facing series of failed
attempts by the APC to destroy his reputation, has also continued to
receive all manners of threats and blackmail, including threats to his
life and those of his wife and children.
Having realized that the majority of Nigerians are rallying behind the
duo of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi as the our Presidential and Vice
Presidential candidates respectively, the Buhari Presidency and the All
Progressives Congress (APC) have resorted to all manners of
machinations, including smear campaigns and direct attacks on their
persons and business concerns, in a bid to run them down.
The Buhari Presidency is intimidated by Peter Obi’s resume,
particularly, his general acceptance as epitome of fiscal
responsibility, frugality and transparency in governance.
Otherwise, why is the Presidency on a wild goose chase in investigating
Peter Obi, who left office as Governor of Anambra state five years ago
with a nationally acclaimed clean record, intact reputation for
frugality, transparency, zero tolerance for corruption and leaving
behind a huge saving of N75 billion naira in cash and investments;
without owing any salaries, pensions, gratuities or even contractors for
The fact remains that the Buhari Presidency and the APC are merely
shadow boxing in their attacks on Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, as their
records before Nigerians speak for them.
All discerning Nigerians know that the reasons for an investigation on a
man like Peter Obi, is a journey to no where aimed to stifle him of
funds as well as attempt to distract our campaign and divert attention
from the failures of the Buhari administration.
It is ludicrous that President Buhari would continue to condone the
looting of our treasuries by his party leaders and the cabal in his
Presidency, which even, the First Lady had even alluded to, only to be
using government agencies to attempt to blackmail our Presidential and
vice Presidential candidates whose reputations stand clear before all
The PPCO reminds President Buhari that neither he nor Vice President
Yemi Osinbajo was in 2015, as candidates, harassed, attacked at the
airport or subjected to blackmails, and wonder why they are now
employing such tactics just because Nigerians have resolved to do away
with them, come 2019.
